I used Hillmann's Training A Retriever Puppy to start my last dog and had great results with his training regime had derby points and QAA at 24 months
I used Duck Dog Basics, Duck Dog Basics II, and I've heard DDB III Advanced is soon to be coming out!!! I have also used bits and pieces of Lardys, and Fowl dogs, but most of what i get and understand most has been from the DDBs videos!! But my girl is only 9 mo and we are just into DDB II. She is hopefully in the next few weeks going to be starting with the water werk stuff!! This is my first ever pup to train and have loved every aspect of it. I got with a training group here in my area and have an absolute blast learning and watching my pup and everybody else's run set ups!! Hope to start into the games maybe in the fall of this year!! Thats a maybe though!! Great post IMOP!!!!
